Tightline your eyes from the outer corner to the center of the eye with Laura Mercier's Cake Eyeliner in Black Ebony, with a flat eyeliner brush.

Add a metallic eyeshadow to add pop to the eyes with a Caviar Eye Stick in Intense Moonlight shade with a crème eye color brush, to the center of the eyelid and the bottom eyelashes.
